Miami's own designer, Liliana Montoya, presented her "Mermaids Collection" at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim 2015 at Cabana Grande at the Raleigh Hotel on July 21, 2014.
Montoya's collection was inspired by the natural beauty of her native Latin American roots bringing to live a collection called Mermaids, as a legend mermaids are the women of the sea who emerge from the bottom of the ocean enchanting the sailors around the world.
This collection celebrates the colors of sprawling ocean hues, coral, tropical fish, seaweed and coastal landscapes. Her signature gold heart ornament adorns many of her pieces, adding her personal warmth as the heart is the universal symbol of love and romance.
The appeal of the line can be found in the fine details of the design and its quality materials. Refined fabrics, ornaments, and brilliant colors and patterns are the essentials for the sophisticated woman seeking the highest quality in her life and her garments. The brand is comprised of standard and stylized cuts with handcrafted elements that bare the stamp of the diverse cultures and colors of Latin America. Liliana Montoya is in the forefront of the “bikini evolution”.
Women evolve and so does fashion. It is this sense of history and feel for time that Montoya continues to capture and create her line each season. She meets the needs of cultured and international women worldwide with fun loving, care free swim wear garments, bikinis and one pieces with select cuts & styles, that showcase the true beauty of today’s modern woman.
